The course familiarizes students with the social, political, and economic processes that produce vulnerability and induce migration. Students will learn about construction and maintenance of critical and social infrastructure in temporary settlements within and across countries. Given that the topic is vast, the course is intended to be a survey of the types of temporary settlements that are largely a response to climate change, geohazards, violence, and pandemics.
